Proposed I-74 detour welcomed by business owner

Local News

There may be a new detour coming next year that sends I-74 illinois-bound traffic to an alternative route.

Project managers propose redirecting traffic coming over the bridge to get off at 7th Avenue.

Cars would then take 19th Street toward Avenue Of The Cities to get back on the interstate.

While the detours have made it challenging for drivers, some business owners appreciate the extra traffic.
